Starter For Lent

Clifton Diocese Lenten Reflections ‘Journeying Through the Desert’.

The focus for week one is on the Temptations of Jesus and our entry into the desert. 

Canon John Udris speaks of the vulnerability of being in the desert and the trust we need to remain there.

In week two Sister Hyacinth reflects we need to find our 'desert' because in the desert we have nothing and in our helplessness we finally turn to Him.
